It began with the breathtaking DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE... the story continues in the astounding, must-read sequel, DAYS OF BLOOD AND STARLIGHT
Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a new way of living - one without massacres and torn throats and bonfires of the fallen, without revenants or bastard armies or children ripped from their mothers' arms to take their turn in the killing and dying.
Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon's secret temple and dreamed of a world that was a like a jewel-box without a jewel - a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness.
This was not that world.

High expectations simply blown away!
It was well past my normal bedtime when I was randomly searching through iBooks and up popped this diamond of a book. My anticipation had been somewhat marred by my impatience, but all that emotion became something more like mania as I downloaded the book and proceeded to read until my eyes were hanging out of my head. I took it to work, I spent a whole Saturday on the couch, refusing to move until it was done.
Laini Taylor, you're an absolute marvel, and an inspiration to a hobbyist writer like myself. Your twists, your revelations, your devastating descriptiveness that teleports Karou's pain, her joy, her guilt and sorrow right into the heart of the reader.
Simply unputdownable, and I honestly don't know how I'm going to stand the wait to find out what happens next!
Days of blood and starlight
Excellent.. Where is the third book???
Loved the first book and while I expected the second to be equally captivating, it was not. Very tedious read, stories go round and round in circles with no added value to the plot. The great mystery of the teeth were revealed like a it was nothing special.
The first book was so enchanting and magical while the second is just dull.
